Did you ever have someone tell you they could smell the odor of snow in the air? It was a number one statement of my father.
Whenever it got chilly plus humid, he would take a pressing whiff of air plus say it smelled akin to snow.
He was excited if all of us even got a couple of snowflakes. It seemed to make it sound as if he knew what he had been talking about. The funny thing is that my dad didn’t love snow when he got older. He was distraught about slipping plus falling. He wore a sweater just in case it got cool in the house. Even before fall arrived, he was reminding myself and others to have the HVAC method cleaned plus maintained. I would hear how my father always called the HVAC corporation in early September. He wanted nothing to happen to our furnace in the middle of winter. He was always mindful of keeping his plus us kids comfortable plus safe. As soon as he mentioned having the furnace or air conditioning unit maintained, I would put it on the calendar. I wanted him to assume that I had listened plus it would be done. He looked at the calendar every afternoon plus I didn’t call the HVAC corporation until he mentioned it again. He would look at the calendar plus tell myself and others that this week was the afternoon to make the call. While he sat there with me, I would call the HVAC for HVAC inspection, plus I would mark it on the calendar. He always wanted to make sure he was up, bathed plus dressed, before the HVAC professional arrived. He never wanted to be caught in a less than respectable position.
